5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

We arrived here after an overnight trip on the Blue Train. We received a lovely friendly welcome, and a much appreciated drink. Our request for a late check out was "no problem" and no extra charge.
Security is excellent, and location is good,about 10 mins walk from the Union Building.
Our room was lovely, spacious, with a large, comfy bed and a huge bathroom, with bath and separate shower. The room was beautifully decorated, and the kitchenette, hidden behind double doors, was well equipped with kettle, coffee maker, microwave, and full sized 'fridge.
The Reception staff were all extremely helpful, and as it was the day of the ANC Youth League March, full of good advice as where we should and shouldn't go.
The swimming pool area looked inviting, but we didn't get time to use it.
We ate an evening meal, breakfast and lunch in the hotel restaurant, all very enjoyable.
The English Chef, Gordon Reynolds, produces some amazing food. We chatted to him over a beer, and asked his advice as what to choose for dinner. He advised us well, the meal was superb, to us his cuisine was superior to that served on the Blue Train, and a real treat for our last night in South Africa.
Sadly for Pretoria Gordon plans to return to the UK shortly. We look forward to eating his food again when he is settled over here. A Michelin Chef of the Future!

Dear Kings 1617,

Thank you for your post of TripAdvisor. We truly appreciate the time our guests take to report on their stay with us.

Chef Gordon will be sorely missed. In his 3 1/2 year tenure at the Court Classique, he developed and awesome team and some wonderful seasonal menu's. We wish Gordon and his wife, Bianca, all the best as they prepare to settle back in the UK in 2012.

Chef Richard Wildner has now joined the Orange Restaurant & Wine Cellar as Executive Chef, with Asher Isaacs still serving as our Sous chef. We look forward to what they will bring to the table in 2012.

We hope to see you again in the not too distant future, at which time you might review the new Chef for us too ;-)

Classique regards
Izelle Nell

I stayed at the CC a number of times over the years when visiting Pretoria. I find the central loacations works well as all appointments are within a few minutes drive. Rooms are well designed and well equipped. Food offering is good and there are a number of other facilities in the area. With the CC being a smaller hotel I also enjoy the personalised attention. Well done guys ! Keep it up !

If you're going on to the Blue Train you'll hate it here.. Scary location ensures you stay in the hotel, but take advantage of using the take out menus as the hotel restaurant is truly awful.

Dear Suzy & Patti,

The place is sucured and has fences. It gaves a save feeling. Place itself is nice. It's surrounded by little pools for animals and a lot of trees. You won't hear the streets because the rooms or studios are behind the reception.
Studio Suite is really updated. It has a large bathroom (bath and shower).
The kitchenette is a clubboard (it's behind doors and small) contained a fridge, coffeemaker and all sorts of drinking and eating material.
Room itself is big and has a flatscreen tv. Beds: good
Enough sheets
Safe: too small
Coffeemilk: expired unfortunatelly so that they could do better.
Parking is free and in the secured area. (plus).
Dinner possibilities: a la carte or buffet.
We had buffet: could be better.
Breakfast: is good.
W-lan: free.
Besides that: we could walk to the union building in less than 20 min. So you're in the centre quite easily by foot.
End conclusion: it's a good hotel.

After a very warm welcome we enjoyed the spacious and modern suite that was spotlessly clean. Its proximity to the Union Building (15 min. walk) and from there on to the City Center (another 25 min.) make it a vantage point for sightseeing by foot. Although the rooms are a definite pro-argument for this enclosed "court" and its parking lot the dinner was not very convincing. As there was a group of about 20 people staying we were offered a buffet-style dinner (180R w/o dessert, 200R with) which was okay, though not for the price. Breakfast was good though.
